A visit to the Belltable Arts Centre in Limerick which has just had its most successful year to date. In 1995 the centre hosted 48 productions, 12 visual art exhibitions and a running series of arts lectures. Box Office revenue for 1995 also reached a record £185,000.
The Belltable has just published a summary of its performance as a written record of the centre's activities offering the public a clear account of how the funds received from the Arts Council, Limerick Corporation and County Council were used.
Commenting on the publication of the review Brendan Lane Chairman of the Belltable Arts Centre comments
A performance of a play is over, unless it's filmed or something, it's gone forever....
It's very important that an arts centre should keep a record
The publication of the review is also to be used as a way of attracting more corporate and commercial sponsorship of events at the centre.
Director of the Belltable Mary Coll describes the centre as
An asset to the city.
